Warning messages when XLSForm spreadsheet opens in Excel

For some of my surveys, when I open the XLSForm spreadsheet via the button on Survey123 Connect, I get a warning message that states "This workbook contains links to one or more external sources that could be unsafe."  When I click on the "Update" button, I get another warning message that states "We can't update some of the links in your workbook right now."  When I click on the "Edit Links..." button I get a dialog window that shows old Excel files that have nothing to do with my current survey form.  None of the buttons to fix this issue solve my problem.  I have no idea how these long gone spreadsheets ended up referenced in my new survey.  When I start building a new survey, I use the "New Survey" button in Survey123 Connect - I do not copy/paste old surveys to start with.  I am using Microsoft Excel 2016 and Survey123 Connect version 2.1.9.  Has anyone else seen this issue and do you have any ideas to a solution for my problem?
